Genting, the 2nd hand smoke paradise

I used to like the weather in Genting as it's clean, it's fresh and it's cool. But I totally changed my mind after my visit to Genting few days ago. The weather is not as cool anymore, at some point, I'm even sweating!! Then the air is no longer clean and fresh. How come? I went into the casino and i can hardly breathe. Too many people smoking!! Even the non smoking area also affected!

You might say, aiyar, casino mar, sure smoky lor. Then I went to one of the Starbucks there, sit inside (non smoking area) quite stuffy, cos no fan and no window, then sit outside, too many people smoking, so basically beside breathing in second hand smoke, can't breathe any fresh air...


On leave again??

My company allows us to bring forward our leaves without limit, you can bring forward all 14 days if you want to. That is why some of my colleagues seldom take leave. They said they got no place to go so better keep all their leaves. I didn't take much leave beginning of the year, only 1 - 2 days like that. I started to take leave in July for my HK trip. Took 5 days leave altogether, then during the raya holidays, we were all forced to take 1 day off cos company closing, then this week, i took another 2 days off cos I don't feel like working during my bday. hehe...

Well, it's not over yet, I'm actually planning a trip in December and if I did go for that trip, I think I will need to take the whole weeks off.. Hmm, I wonder will my manager said something about the way I take leave? It seems like every month I'm taking leave...:p

Dear pakcik, when are you going to open your stall??

After the raya holidays, I brought an empty tupperware with me to work everyday. For what? Well, I haven't got the chance to eat the nasi lemak from the stall near my office since they start puasa, really miss the nasi lemak lar. So I brought the empty tupperware to work to tabao lar, once they reopen their stall!!

It's almost one month after raya, how come the pakcik still dowan to open the stall? He got other source of income meh?? Can rest for so long?? Arggg, 2 months didn't get to eat that nasi lemak, but tabao 2 packet already once the stall reopen. :p

Laugh? Or not to laugh?

A group of people talking and suddenly one of the said something which caused everyone burst into laughter. Well, not everyone lar, cos I'm not laughing. When they started to laugh, I was like, huh? What so funny? I totally do not feel it is funny at all but when I see all of them laughing and some of them you can even see tears coming out from their eyes, I started to realize...

Hmm, this is clearly communication problem, (in cantonese 'doi kao'). We have age gap, they are in the early twenties, where as me in my late twenties. hehe...I'm old d.. cannot understand what so funny in that topic...

Should I laugh as well? or should i just remain silent and watched them laugh? :p

I went to Giant after work today. I wanted to buy some vegetables to cook for my dinner and of cos some other stuff. So with a trolley, i buy and buy and buy lot's of lot's of things. Luckily there's not much ppl there and I don't even need to queue up to pay.

So what did I buy? Well, I bought lot's of things such as one of my favorite fruit, grapefruits, maggie mee, some potato chips, chicken ribs for my soup tomorrow, mayonnaise, oats, milk, corn flakes and I even bought myself a pedometer!!

Did you plan for your retirement?

Seriously, I never think about this. Well, I'm not saying that I'm young but this retirement thing never really come across my mind. Some of my friends told me they hope to retire when they are 40 years old, some said 50 years old. As for me, I think I will retire when I am suppose to, perhaps 55? or 60.

I've seen people retired earlier, they got nothing to do, feels bored after sometime and soon they become very frusfrated, some got sick, some bad tempered. That is why to me I think retiring earlier is not really a good thing unless you already got plans. You know what you want to do after you retired, maybe travel, or do something that you interested or so. But then again, if your hobby will need to use a lot of money (for eg, travel), then you better make sure your retirement funds are enough for that, else...

Did you stuck in the jam yesterday night?

Normally if no jam, it took me 20 to 30 minutes to reach home from office. Guess what time I reached home yesterday after work? I left office at 8pm and I reached home 2 hours later, at 10pm!! Ya I know, rainy days, sure jam one, but then again, cannot be that jam what.

So what happened? Well, besides the rain, there's 3 cars spoiled, then got one minor accident and got one major accident near the kepong toll. So I guess that major accident caused the jam. I didn't see anything when i FINALLY reached the toll, i only see broken pieces on the road.

What about you? Did you stuck in the jam too? What time you reached home?

No interest given for savings accounts??

I remembered last time every 6 months, the bank will calculate interest and deposit into our saving accounts regardless how much money we have in our account. But now? Seems like it's not any more. Yesterday I went to open a saving account at Public Bank. When I read through the information on that saving account, I realized there's really such rule, there's no interest at all for if your account got less than this amount of money.

Hmm, why we open account then? Bank in our money and let them use freely? No wonder now most of the ppl don't save money lar.. oh ya, blame the bank!! Is every bank like this? So far I've encountered this with Hong Leong, CIMB and Public Bank.

1 For RM 12, 2 For RM 7+ and 10 for RM 2????

I hate to buy those mini batteries (nor, those for watches one..). There are a lot of things which use these kind of mini batteries besides watch such as small torch lights, alarm clocks, and etc. These mini batteries are expensive and hard to get, you can't get it at hypermarkets, normally you can only find it at those shops selling cameras, watches and etc.

Recently both my alarm clock and torch light ran out of battery. When I passed by a shop that sells watches, I walked and asked how much is the mini battery cost (I need 6). The person told me one for RM 12, wow!! that's expensive, I need 6 leh, then almost Rm 100 lar...The next day, I went to a kodak shop and the person sold me 2 for RM 7. I bought 2 for my alarm clock and decided not to buy for the torch light first, since I didn't use it often also.

One day, I went walk walk at a shop that sells china stuff and guess what, I saw these mini batteries, 10 for RM 2!! Wow, that's really really cheap lar. Although I don't know how long will these battery last but no harm trying on my torch lights rite? hahahahahha...

Insurance insurance? How come so many calls one..

This morning I received a call from MBF, in mandarin. I told her I've terminated my MBF card long long time ago. Then she asked me whether I got some other cards or not. She wants to explain to me about their insurance plan, only RM 17 per month lar, cover what what what lar.. I know she can go on and on so I told her I'm not interested and bye bye.

Few hours later, I received another call, this time in english, calling from AirAsia on behalf of dono what.. can't remember the name. He started with.."I know you recently just booked the free tickets..." So I continue listen lar, I don't know what he's up to mar..Then he starts talking about the Air Asia Insurance plan, there is a lot of benefits lar, benefit 1 .. (explained about 5 minutes), then when I was about the say something, he continue with benefit 2 (without stopping or taking breathe..geng!!).. I got no chance to talk and when he starts talking about benefit 3, I decided to stop him, else I don't know how many more benefits he wants to tell me..

What day is today? So many insurance related calls one? Hopefully no more for today, and tomorrow, and the next day, and the next next day..

High tea, high tea, where's nice?

It has been quite a while since I last went for a high tea, in fact, it has been quite some years. hehe.. I remembered the last hi tea i went was at the Sunway Resort hotel, that time it was only RM 30+ per person. Since last week, I've been craving for hi tea so I made a call to the Sunway Resort hotel and asked them how much per person for the hi tea. Guess what? They had increased from RM 30+ to RM 52 per person! Wow, that's expensive.... I check the Internet for Shangri-la's hi tea and found out it's even more expensive, RM 68 per person!! wow..

I actually cannot remember what's the difference between hi tea and buffet lunch/dinner. Hi tea got more desserts? less main dish? Anybody can recommend any nice hi tea at kl/pj area?

I'm so not used to the sound of the ALARM clock!!

This morning at 8am+, I was awake by some noise. I woke up, looked around trying to figure out where that noise came from. After a while, I realized that noise is actually my alarm clock. Oh yes, after the long raya holidays, I can't even remember the sound of the alarm clock!! I miss those days where I can wake up by myself without the alarm clock.

On my way to work, I noticed there's not many cars on the road. People still on leave? School not started yet? or a lot of people choose to MC? hehe.. Monday and Friday is the best day to MC mar, right?

Anyway, welcome back to work and happy working!! As for me, I will be having blues.. Monday blues.. hopefully only monday blues...and not tuesday blues, wednesday blues, thursday blues...

Earpick with light?

I saw this when I went shopping at Ikano (Ace Hardware) just now. I think this is very useful especially for those who have children at home.

Lighting Earpick, RM 2

There's suppose to have another two types of earpicks (thick and thin) beside, but I think I took the one without these earpicks, must have dropped it. So make sure you choose one with the extra earpicks.


when you're done, you can remove the spoon.

and now it's a small torch light. haha..

you can keep the spoon at the back...
